ReutersWayne Rooney agreed to a deal to bolt Everton for Major League Soccer when the transfer window opens.
Rooney, 32, is reportedly set to sign with DC United in a deal worth as much as $14 million, according to BBC News.
Rooney’s representatives began negotiating terms of a contract to move Rooney from the Premier League club. Manager Sam Allardyce has said Rooney is not guaranteed a starting spot next season.
Rooney re-joined Everton in July 2017 and is halfway through a two-year deal. He spent 13 seasons at Manchester United after signing from Everton as an 18-year-old, becoming their record goalscorer and winning five Premier League titles and the Champions League.
Rooney is Everton’s top scorer with 11 goals this season.
